Gender Selection Treatment: 5 Reasons It Should be Legal in the UK

I recently read an article about the online abuse Danielle Lloyd faced when people found out about her decision to undergo gender selection treatment. I didn’t really understand why she faced so much abuse for the decision, and I didn’t even realise that the treatment was illegal in the UK. So I thought I’d delve into the issue and give you five reasons gender selection treatment should be LEGAL in the UK. As usual, I might be wrong in a lot of what I’m going to say. But I’m just trying to add a little bit of balance to this…

Sorry, Piers Morgan, it’s Not Emasculating Babywearing as a Dad

Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan has been criticised for his latest statement on dads and their decision to use baby carriers. He said “The adoption of the papoose by some men is the best example of emasculation I have ever seen.

Or is Piers simply wrong on this one. If you want to watch the segment, here it is: Is it Emasculating Babywearing as a Dad? When I…

Theybies: The New Bullshit Term for Gender Neutral Parenting

I’ve heard some bizarre shit in my time, but I recently came across the term ‘Theybies’ and thought “here we go again, more of this stupid shit.” This is essentially coming off the back of the whole ‘gender-neutral’ parenting movement that has slowly but surely been picking up a lot of steam lately.

If you want to see some of the stupid shit I’m referring…

I sometimes dress our baby girl in pink. According to some people, by dressing her in this colour I’m reinforcing outdated gender stereotypes. Some minister via the Independent even went as far to say “dressing your daughter in pink and buying her ‘girly’ toys damages the future of our economy.” Before I carry on with this post, I will admit that I am being slightly facetious with what I’m about to say. I have my tongue firmly in my cheek and there’s a part of me that’s just playing devil’s advocate. So chill out. I’m just trying to look at things…

12 Weeks Paternity to Address the Gender Pay Gap?

On the back of MPs calling for 12 weeks paternity leave, the Guardian have gone with the idea that it will help address the gender pay gap. Whilst I’m all up for having 12 weeks paternity, my question here is quite simple: What Does The ‘Gender Pay Gap’ Have to do With This? I’ll be honest. I would’ve loved having 12 weeks paternity leave when Isabelle was born. In total, I had six weeks off. But four of those weeks were spent on the sick due to postnatal depression. So that doesn’t exactly count. But bringing it in because it’ll help…
